“Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever and rich”
Thus began Jane Austen’s classic, a light and lively tale set in an English village two hundred years ago. Yet every era has its share of Emmas: young women trying to find themselves in their own corners of the world. I Could Write a Book is the story of a self-proclaimed modern woman: Emma Katherine Woodhouse, a 1970s co-ed whose life is pleasant, ordered, and predictable, if a bit confining.
I am a huge fan of Jane Austen's. I’ve read a multitude of versions of Pride & Prejudice and watched variations of all of Jane Austen’s works on TV. This was the first time I knowingly got a rework of Emma so I was very curious. This didn’t disappoint. I really enjoyed this story and this Emma. I highly recommend to anyone that’s a Jane Austen fan.
